Book Sale: Monday, May 2

Come support free access to legal information at the Dane County Legal Resource Center's (DCLRC) book sale on Monday, May 2. The book sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the lower-level cafe of the Dane County Courthouse.

The Dane County Bar Association and DCRLC are coordinating this book sale as part of Dane County's law day celebration. The book sale aims to raise enough money for another year's subscription to Shepard's to which the library currently subscribes and provides for free in the library. Shepard's is an important online legal research tool used to retrieve full text state and federal court opinions, verify that a case is still good law, and find additional relevant cases - all crucial steps in the caselaw research process but a service in jeopardy of being cut due to shrinking budgets.

The sale features gently used recreational books, including contemporary fiction and non-fiction, true crime, mystery, cookbooks, memoirs, travel guides, and more. Stop by and browse for "new-to-you" books just in time for summer, and invite your friends to join you! Paperbacks will sell for $1, hardcovers for $2, and there will be a 2-for-1 table.

All proceeds will be put towards next year's subscription to Shepard's online.
